81% of the students the Fulfillment Fund serves are the first in their family to attend college.

Our students attend a broad range of colleges all across the country, including large public universities, liberal arts colleges, two-year colleges, Ivy League schools, and more.

Fulfillment Fund alumni graduate college and go on to be successful in many fields. Many alumni even come back to the Fulfillment Fund to serve as mentors to the next generation.
